Morning all!!
Thank you for your lovely messages on my last post.

With the sadness of the last few weeks, within my circle
of friends and family, your messages were kind and uplifting.

I just thank goodness for having the best hobby you can have!!
You can make things, that make you smile and not all Sympathy cards.

This project made me smile for the days it took to make!!

What isn't visible, is that her face and ears are 3D.
I stamped and coloured her head twice.
The flowers and leaves are all die cuts.

Now tell me, she certainly makes you smile!!! 
Or, Are You Having A Giraffe!!!Lol!!

Sorry, just had to add that quip!!

To colour her and the flowers, I used a palette of water colours, 
that I bought in Hobbycraft. 
They were half price, so I had to have them!! (Rude not to!!)

I used Langton Smooth Water Colour pad, that I 
also bought in Hobbycraft. I then mounted it onto a canvas.
Guess where I bought the canvas?!!!!

I edged the card with TH Distress Oxide, Faded Jeans.

Hope you are enjoying the sunshine. It certainly lifts you
mentally and physically, pottering in the garden.

Stay home and keep safe.

Big hugs,

Hi Carol, what a glorious canvas this is. There is something so beautiful about the eyes of a giraffe, probably those gorgeous velvety lashes. We are very overcast here today, not the sunshine we were promised for sure but I think the sun is due to put in an appearance a bit later xx

This certainly makes you smile Carol and I love her blue eyelashes and the 3D parts. I agree with you about pottering in the garden, especially in this lovely weather we're having. Visited a garden centre this morning and I always buy too much. Just can't resist the pretty flowers! xx
